In association with Eco Boats Australia there was a range of products such as inboard and outboard motors on display and people could come for free rides with a Duffy electric boat through Cockle Bay.
Some 10.000 visitors attended the festival and there was a good level of interest in electric boating, which shows that more and more people are discovering the benefits of quiet and clean propulsion.

Members now also have the opportunity to place for sale/wanted ads and log-in with a password to the ‘members only area’ where they can access technical information sheets and EBAA association documents.
